The Habits of Mind are one of the true classics in education. Derived by Art Costa and Bena Kallick, the Habits of Mind describe what the most efficacious learners do when confronted with problems, the solutions to which are not immediately apparent.

For more than 25 years, schools around the world have been working to improve student learning outcomes by infusing the Habits of Mind into their curriculum and classrooms. Over that time we have seen student learning outcomes improve and schools flourish as the Habits of Mind are adopted and lived throughout the school community.

Over the years we’ve seen schools take many different approaches to working with the Habits of Mind. Unfortunately not all of them are equally successful.

The tipping point for succeeding with Habits of Mind is to shift from teaching about the Habits of Mind, and asking students to “use” the Habits of Mind, to teaching “for” the Habits of Mind and taking teacher action to ensure students are explicitly developing and improving how they engage with the Habits of Mind.

This course will show you how to go beyond the basics, and ensure your work with Habits of Mind has a significant impact on student learning outcomes.
